Graphic Card Compatibility

I have a computer that's on the upwards of 6 years old. The model was created 2/7/02 according to the date on the back of the computer. The model of the computer that we found was Gateway ATXAEG LX2 700x, serial number 0027689396 {if that possibly helps} I went to Best Buy today {2/12/08} to buy a new graphics card since mine is going on the fritz, and the one I planned to buy was not compatible according to the man who helped me. My question is this: What graphic card could I buy that's compatible with this specific computer? And, if I need to, can I order a card for it directly from Gateway?

What compatible graphic card for 2 ghz mac pro

The CPU speed alone is not enough to identify your Mac Pro model. You would also need to know when it was manufactured (for example, those made in mid-2010 can use cards that won't work in early 2010 or older models). This information is easily obtained from System Profiler (in the Apple menu, select "About This Mac," then click on "More Info...").

Once you know the specific model or date of manufacture, you can look through Apple Support articles for graphics compatibility information. Apple Support Search Try searching within these results for your model number or the year to cut down on the number of titles.

I have compaq sg3530il desktop and i want to know which graphic card is compatible with my computer ?

You must contact the manufacturer of the computer (HP) for compatibility and recommendations for a graphic card. Go to the HP website and click support and send them an email. Only the manufacturer can give you a straight answer. HP bought out Compaq several years ago, so I'm sure it would be HP to contact.

I have pentium 4,model is old 6 years,and I have LG Flarton w 2230s monitor,and I cant see a full image on my display,borders are shorter for 4cm in both side,maybe my graphic card is old?

I think that you have the wrong resolution set on the computer.

1/ Right click on the background part of your screen, click on settings, look at the screen resolution, adjust the screen resolution for wider setting.

2/ Try downloading the latest drivers for you graphics card and installing them.

3/ If you have a cd with drivers for the monitor install them and that will be fixed.

Or you may need a later model graphics card.
